:: A message from Louise Smith

Congratulations on bringing in our second class. Last week was so outstanding because everyone stepped up in the ways that we needed. All of us in Community Life are grateful to the support we received from all of you, in small and big ways.

It seemed that all we had to do was ask (and sometimes we didn’t even have to ask) and things happened in just the ways we needed. Without this team spirit, initiative, and willingness to step in, we would never have made it.

I am so proud of our community and of you!


:: News from the Office of Advancement

It’s been a busy few months full of changes in Office of Advancement. We’d like to share our staff changes so that you may route your requests properly.

Maya Nye will be transitioning to her new role in residence life, and we will work to fill her position as the alumni relations officer for volunteer management. Maria Rauch is now the alumni relations officer for events and communications. Steve Sturman is now the director of leadership gifts.

:: Connect to the Common Text with Mark Roosevelt

Dear Antioch Team,

I just want to make sure you know you are invited to join the Connect to the Common Text discussion with the new class TODAY at 4:00 p.m. in McGregor 113. Even if you cannot make it, I urge you, no I implore you, to read the Malcolm Gladwell article “How David beats Goliath” and think about how it relates to our work at Antioch. Indeed, after you give the piece a close reading, think about how it relates to your own work here. There is so much in this piece to catalyze thinking about what we do each and every day.
